200th Blog Post!

200th blog post

 

I can hardly believe that I am writing my 200th blog post! Thank you to those of you who have stumbled along with me as I figured out what I wanted to do here. 🙂 I am grateful for your support, you’ll never know how much.

This post marks a momentous occasion for me. Next week, I will be going on my first ever Writer’s Week. I am so excited to be able to devote some time to my writing and come back with some first draft work that is well on its way to publication. I am excited and nervous and sad to be away from my family for a week, but this will be some much needed ‘me’ time and writing time!

Sometimes I wonder why I started this blog and why I continue to post here. What’s the POINT? (Because I’m very much a ‘what’s the point’ kind of person.) And then I get a message or comment from someone (not linking to a porn site or trying to sell something) that tells me they love my writing, appreciate the resources I share, or just enjoy the free books I post. Those comments make it all worth while for me. I love to share knowledge with others, it’s kind of my thing. 🙂 So for those of you who have sent me an email or commented on my posts, THANK YOU! To those of you who click ‘Like’ on my posts and follow my blog, THANK YOU! The few moments it takes you to leave a comment, click the ‘Like’ button, or write a short message mean so much to me and I am truly grateful.

Next week, I will also be gearing up for NaNoWriMo!! Yeah! Who else is participating? I hope WILL win this year. I participated last year and life got in the way, so I didn’t win last year. But this year, let’s all get those badges to put on our websites, our blogs, in our email signatures, or wherever, ’cause writing 50,000 words is no easy feat, no small potatoes, no piss in the bucket!! It’s an amazing accomplishment, and I hope you all will join me in December to toot our horns on our accomplishments!

Thanks for reading, and as always,

Happy Writing! 🙂
